I thought with the warm weather coming up, everyone might like one place to go to find their favorite jello dishes...desserts, salads, etc.

Flavored Rice Krispies

Just a tip: You can make any flavor rice krispies you want by adding a small packet of Jell-o to them when you're mixing them into the melted marshmallow.

I wonder if it would work with a small packet of instant pudding mix too. . . .

A Brief History of Jello

Colleen Sowa posted this in the thread of one of her great jello recipes...thought everyone in this group would like to read it. Thanks Colleen!

In 1845, industrialist, inventor, and philanthropist Peter Cooper, of Tom Thumb engine and Cooper Union fame, obtained the first patent for a gelatin dessert. Coopernever promoted the product.

In 1895, Pearl B. Wait, a cough syrup manufacturer from Le Roy, New York who dealt in patent medicines, bought the patent from Peter Cooper and turned Cooper's gelatin dessert into a prepackaged commercial product. His wife, May David Wait, renamed the dessert "Jell-O." However, they were also unsuccessful in selling the product.

Frank Woodward, a school dropout and, who by the age of 20 had his own business, bought the rights to Jell-O for $450. Among the products Woodward marketed were several patent medicines, Raccoon Corn Plasters, and a roasted coffee substitute called Grain-O. Sales were still slow, so Woodward offered to sell the rights to Jell-O® to his plant superintendent for $35. However, before the final sale, intensive advertising paid off. By 1906, sales reached $1 million. By sending out nattily dressed salesmen to demonstrate Jell-O and distributing 15 million copies of a Jell-O recipe book containing celebrity favorites, popularity rose. Woodward’s Genesee Pure Food Company was renamed Jell-O Company in 1923, and later merged with Postum Cereal to become the General Foods Corporation

New Jeans....

I had to go buy a new pair of jeans. My one one was getting faded, riped, and lose on me. I was so socked when I when into the fitting room to try on the first 1. It was to "BIG", and I had to go look for a smaller size. My old pair was a size 12, and my new one is 2 sizes smaller. I was so very socked & very happy....
